Muslim and christian dating dating someone green card marriage
This is especially true if the Muslim man or woman is first-generation and from a country which is war-torn.As one woman points out over at 30-Days.net, “In some ways, there is no such thing as ‘the individual’ in Islam.But they definitely aren’t in secluded places together.If you are coming from a Western culture, then some of cultural aspects of dating a Muslim can be incredibly strange (or downright difficult).Families have an extremely strong influence on their children – even from across the ocean!!”To give you an idea of how strong tradition is, I know from Muslim backgrounds who religiously fasts during Ramadan.Of course, modern living doesn’t exactly permit it to work out this way.
Islam may permit this, but the man’s culture and family may forbid it completely.If she isn’t married by 30, meeting Muslim men becomes very difficult.In an interview for Huffington Post Live, Palestinian-Muslim comedian Zahra Noorbakhsh joked about her relationship with an atheist man, and how her parents came to accept it. Then, when those alarm bells started ringing as she got older, they just wanted her to get married.Like when you don’t get offered a glass of wine (which you need to calm your nerves) at dinner with his family.Or like how you can’t even kiss during daylight hours during Ramadan.
